& Transition Updates

Eastern Shore Chapel Enters Clergy Transition

On Sunday, November 6th our parish marked the conclusion of pastoral ministry of Father Cameron Randle, the 45th Rector of Eastern Shore Chapel Episcopal Church. Father Cameron has accepted a call to the Diocese of Western Kansas, where he will be closer to and able to care for his parents. Father Cameron served as Priest in Charge at ESC from 2017-2019 and Rector from 2019-2022.

At this time, the ESC vestry and Diocese of Southern Virginia are working together on the next phase of ministry for our church. Our services of worship and weekly ministry remains supported by Associate Rector, Rev. Melody Perdue, and our resident affiliate clergy.

Updates to our time of transition will be posted regularly on our website. Throughout this process we remain confident in the leading of the Holy Spirit and of the faithfulness and love of our parish family.

Prayer during a time of transition

by Anika Rinker

God of love, in this interim time, we pray for our parish family, that we may be genuine in our self-reflection, tireless in our commitment, patient in our discernment, loving in our communion, open in our search, imaginative about our future, and daring in our faith.  As we enter into this new era with excitement and even some anxiety, we recall your deep compassion, presence, and abounding love. We thank you for the gifts, talents, and skills with which you have blessed us. We thank you for the experiences that have brought us to this moment. Be with us as we move forward, rejoicing with you and supporting one another. All this we pray, empowered by the love of Jesus Christ. Amen.
